I'm not really sure myself, I think it's kind of a **** shoot.  First of all advil is just a brand name for ibuprofen.  So the decision is between acetaminophen (tylenol), ibuprofen, or aspirin.   I think aspirin is out, yet I can't tell you why.  Acetaminophen is very toxic to your liver, but only taken in large doses (this is what my doc said).  So whether you use Tylenol or not I think should depend on how well your liver is functioning, that is, in a healthy liver, taken with moderation it's pretty harmless.
    Ibuprofen used to be considered the liver friendly one (although it wrecks your stomach), but now there are studies saying that it does hurt your liver.
    My doc said I could take one of each (tylenol and advil).  That way I'm not taking to much of either. It works like a charm for pain too.
